Controversial call helps Roosters seal back-to-back titles

How mechanic Raider Dunamis Lui found second life in Canberra

Heartbreakingly for Ricky Stuart's side, the Roosters scored off the next set with Luke Keary exploding down the blind side and Latrell Mitchell producing a attractive flick pass to unlock Daniel Tupou for Tedesco to score between the posts.

During his chats with Cronk, Mayes discovered he has a personal connection with the gun half's family.

Rivals may hate the Roosters but you've got to respect them.

Andrew Johns agreed and said "I'm with you Gus, that's not a sin bin", before relenting and saying "at least they're consistent".

"It's obviously very messy and disappointing as a whole that we're now talking about an incident where they actually got the decision right, the just got it right in a way that has created an obvious amount of controversy. We decided to make a difference and change the momentum of the game and we did".

The Roosters then scored off the next set, with Luke Keary exploding down the blind side and Latrell Mitchell producing a attractive flick pass to unlock Daniel Tupou for Tedesco to score between the posts. Just ask the Roosters who were gifted field possession when the ball hit their trainer.

It was a fast-paced start to the contest from both teams, but a repeat set of six which came about in unusual circumstances allowed the Roosters to draw first blood in the seventh minute. Roosters get scrum feed and another set.

The Roosters led 8-6 at half-time but it appeared Canberra had all the momentum.

Staked to a three-shot lead to start the back nine at the TPC Summerlin, Na never imagined it would come down to that. American Pat Perez finished alone in third on 263 after a three-under 68.

7m: Roosters open scoring when hooker Sam Verrills burrows over from dummy-half next to the post. Mitchell adds a further two points for Roosters to lead 8-0.

31m: Canberra are on the scoreboard after Nick Cotric and Josh Hodgson combine with Jack Wighton stepping through some flimsy defence.

Injured in the week-one finals win over South Sydney, the Roosters five-eighth will now go for full scans to determine if he needs surgery that will rule him out of Australian selection. Croker kicks the penalty to lock up the score 8-8.

The Raiders weren't overwhelemed by the occasion and worked their way back into the game through Jack Wighton's try. Raiders then penalised for a highshot on Keary by Aidan Sezer.

NRL head of football Graham Annesley told Channel Nine after the game that he was satisfied with the actions of the referees in the 50th-minute sin-binning of Cooper Cronk and late confusion about an overturned "six again" call by referee Ben Cummins.

Roosters winger Daniel Tupou made a break from inside his own half before putting full-back James Tedesco away for a try.

The Roosters claimed back to back premierships.
